Synopsis

In 1931, the Tokugawa Shogunate remains in power, marking the 64th year of the Meiji era. Holding a monopoly over the newly discovered "Dragon Vein," the government is leading Japan toward an advanced Edo period. During this time, an elite force of executioners called "Nue" is tasked with defending the Shogunate from a rebel institution known as the "Kuchinawa."

As the owner of the Tsuyukasa Bookshop, Sawa Yukimura runs the store's day-to-day business inconspicuously. But behind the scenes, she seeks vengeance against the man who slaughtered her tribe and family. With a special ability to transform granted by her blue blood, Sawa joins Nue after being promised information regarding the target of her revenge: Janome, the leader of the Kuchinawa.

If I was a teacher, I'd give Jouran an A for effort. It's got a pretty unique and interesting premise/world and the right ingredients to make a good show. Unfortunately, just effort isn't enough in life, and things didn't come together the way they could've for Jouran.

Decent action, good animation, and a pretty good OST aren't enough to patch up the holes in Jouran, and I think the final episode does a great job of summarizing the series as a whole; the right ideas but just too messy. The show is "decent" at best in my eyes, but I'll have to settle for a 3 read more

Revenge, assassination, existence, repression and authoritharianism. All of those sound like ambitious topics for a 1920-ish ambientated anime with industrial fictional elements; sure, good things could come up from here. So then: what novelties does Jouran bring to the table while exploring those topics? Not many, or at least not enough to make itself remarkable over any other anime of its genre. Considering Jouran’s audience is already quite niche, I don’t think I would recommend anyone that is not completely passionate about all the revenge themes to go out of their way to watch it. If you are still interested though, let’s go on a read more

"The Suffering Tale of a Sweet and Poisonous Young Girl" - Jouran can be defined simply by those words. As a new experimental work from 2021, Bakken Record Studio has the show as its second production and first broadcast weekly.

The show begins with a perspective that intersperses underworld, government corruption, and work lurking and in the dark. Nue is a very strong and influential group in Japan, especially when it comes to their most important function: to ensure the security and political integrity of the country at any cost. In the same act we meet Sawa, the main character of the show, taking care of read more

Whenever I come across original anime, my first instinct is always to scrutinize the production staff team and see what are their past records, because that's always a very good indication if the anime could shoot for the moon, or in the case of Jouran: The Princess of Snow and Blood, be the sub-servience of another mediocre shot at hiring non-recognizable names and making generic stuff, just to waste all that money down the drain for some other anime or even mixed-media projects that could be made better and make all that effort worth its run.

I'd swear: take a look at the staff team, and read more
